“Monica is a great host. The house is magnificent in the perfect spot high up on a hill with lovely sunset. House is set on the perfect side of the hill. A car rental is needed to go up to the house or visit neighbouring areas. On the way up to the house there is a large supermarket to buy groceries. There is a great Pizzeria called La Bionda and they also do deliveries. Its a perfect holiday for a relaxing weekend in total relaxation.”
La Collina del Sole has an award winning salt water infinity pool and jacuzzi, and views that are like something from a film set. Set in the stunningly beautiful Garfagnana region of northern Tuscany, La Collina del Sole is a jewel among the holiday villas in Lucca, it is a fabulous family home for relaxed summer living. Mountain hikes, discovering the villages and hidden beauty of Garfagnana can be combined with trips to the nearby coast, and the magical cities of Lucca and Florence.
“The villa and location are absolutely spectacular! Situated high in the Tuscan mountains the views are amazing and the home is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Andrew and Chrissie have spared no details in the home and were always very responsive and helpful. What really made our time even more amazing was the hospitality of Gessica (a local Italian lady) and her mother who provided us with a 5 course catered Tuscan dinner (complete with fresh ingredients from their garden) on American Thanksgiving Day and a pizza making lesson on another evening. They even brought us more firewood for the fireplace when we needed it! Even though the villa is famous for it's infinity pool overlooking the mountains, we could not have asked for a better stay even at the end of November. In fact, on Saturday the weather was warm and sunny and we spend hours hiking the local trails. We cannot say enough!”
Il mio alloggio è vicino a il centro città, splendide viste panoramiche, ristoranti, parchi e arte e cultura. Ti piacerà il mio alloggio per questi motivi: la comodità del letto, gli spazi esterni, il quartiere, l'atmosfera e la luce. Il mio alloggio è adatto a coppie, avventurieri solitari, chi viaggia per lavoro e amici pelosi (animali domestici).
“Casa di Giuliana is just a few minutes walk from the historic center of Castelnuovo. In the immediate vicinity there is ample parking with free places and paid parking (we have never had any problems to park on the seats for free). The house is spread over several floors: the entrance is located at street level, climbing to the first floor is the living room with dining table and kitchen, on the second floor 1 double bedroom, 1 single bedroom and a bathroom with tub. Going up one more floor, you can access the house's stronghold: a splendid terrace overlooking the roofs of Castelnuovo and the mountains; on the same floor there is also a laundry room with a shower. The house is where Giuliana usually lives and is therefore equipped with everything you need, without any bargaining, including wifi internet. Giuliana is very helpful, communications are excellent, even though during our stay she asked us permission to go through the house to recover some personal effects. It did not bother us and called us to ask permission, as we were away from home. Being her home and working her a short distance, for the check in we waited, in total agreement with her, to come back from work, exchanging some pleasant chat and asking her information on places to visit and restaurants in the area. Really recommended solution!”
